MIR4 Beginner’s Guide With Tips and Tricks for Newcomers
The new MIR4 offers a ton of new adventures to MMORPG lovers, all with a backdrop rife with Eastern aesthetics and amazing 3D graphics that give us a feast for the eyes. However, a good game like this one can be fully enjoyed only on the best platforms, and BlueStacks is the best way to enjoy it as our Android app player gives you the best graphics and performance, without the need to spend extraordinary amounts of money on a high-end phone.
Regardless of how you’re playing it, MIR4 is a brand new game released a few weeks ago, which means that there are probably still lots of new players just getting into it. If you’re among these newcomers and want to get a good start on the game without wasting too much time learning the basics, then this guide is for you.
In the following paragraphs, you’ll find numerous beginner tips and information that will help you to get started in MIR4 on the right track.
The Different Classes
Like many other MMORPGs, MIR4 lets you choose between different classes before jumping into the game. On this occasion, this game has four classes to choose from, all of which have vastly different stats and skills, which makes them uniquely suited for different play styles.
Here’s a quick breakdown of the four classes in MIR4:
- Warrior: Lots of damage potential combined with the best defense in the game make this class the most suited for beginners.
- Sorcerer: Devastating AoE and single-target spells, with the tradeoff of having low defense, which makes this class a bit tricky to use.
- Taoist: Powerful and fast melee attacks, as well as access to healing and support skills make this class into a powerful option for solo players. However, their melee play style and low defenses make them into one of the most difficult classes to master.
- Lancer: Using their mighty spears, Lancers have lots of range and a wide variety of mobility skills to punish their foes and stay on the move, respectively. They’re one of the best classes for PvP due to their sweeping strikes, CC, and mobility.
Your choice of class in MIR4 is quite important as your enjoyment of the game will rely heavily on your decision. In this case, go for the class that catches your eye, even if it’s not the one that does the most damage. Alternatively, check out our MIR4 class tier list to get more guidance on this topic.
The Combat System
As a mobile MMORPG, MIR4 has a heavy emphasis on auto-combat, which essentially trivializes any challenge that the game may pose since the computer can always handle it just fine. However, when fighting against bosses and other tough enemies, you might find that the computer doesn’t do too much of a good job at staying alive, which is why you’ll always want to know how to assume manual control and engage the enemy.
Like with countless other games in the genre, MIR4 has real-time action combat where you can move your character using the left virtual joystick, and attack and use skills with the buttons on the right. In this sense, the fights are quite straightforward, consisting mostly of dodging attacks while pressuring the enemy with the player’s own abilities. To aid in this endeavor, players also have access to a variety of basic movement skills like dashing and dodging, which they can use in a pinch to get out of the way of dangerous attacks.
To make matters much easier in combat, we strongly recommend playing MIR4 on PC with BlueStacks. Our Android app player not only lets you play this game with the best graphics and performance, but you’ll also be able to fight using your mouse and keyboard, as opposed to clunky touchscreen controls, which will significantly boost your combat effectiveness.
Potions and Consumables
And speaking of combat effectiveness, one of the most important aspects when grinding and farming monsters for experience, aside from your level, skills, and gear, are your consumables.
Your consumable items are basically the lifeblood of your grinding experience as they will be the ones keeping you alive while you AFK farm. While in some cases, such as when you’re fighting against weaker enemies, you probably won’t need to use these as much, you’ll definitely need them once the difficulty starts increasing and you actually start taking damage when farming.
You can purchase consumables like potions from vendors which are located in every major hub. Make sure to visit them and pick up lots of these, especially if you’re thinking of AFK grinding later throughout the day. Furthermore, you can also adjust the rate in which you consume potions by clicking on the gear icon next to their buttons. For best results we recommend setting both values to around 30% to 35% of HP and MP. This is to avoid overuse of potions in areas where they might not be needed, which in turn will help you spend less money, and will also save you some trips since you won’t have to go back and buy potions as often.
Vigor and Grinding
As a game with such a strong emphasis on automated fighting, you’ll be spending most of your downtime in MIR4 by parking your character in a combat zone and simply activating auto-combat to have your characters grind and farm automatically for hours on end. After all, if you’ve already completed your dailies and don’t feel like progressing through the story at the moment, instead of closing the game, you could do the next best thing and start auto-farming while minimizing the game to the background, and using your PC to play another game or do something else.
Nevertheless, to get the most out of your farming trips, we recommend always activating the Vigor bonuses in order to get extra experience from every monster you defeat, as well as other awesome bonuses. You can activate vigor through its respective menu by clicking its button that’s located just underneath your HP. By using certain items, which you receive by completing certain missions, you can activate vigor bonuses during a certain period. After this period ends, you’ll need to use more of these items to continue receiving bonuses.
As a general rule of thumb, if you’re going to farm on your PC while AFK, we always recommend using just one hour of vigor at a time, and then coming back often to use more, or to shut down the game in case we need to head out. This ensures that you don’t waste any valuable vigor time and save it exclusively for when you’re going to be passively farming.
Skills and How to Upgrade Them
To obtain new skills, you need to first fulfill certain conditions, such as reaching a certain level. Once unlocked, you can assign any new skills to a slot so you can use them in combat. Upgrading these skills is similar to unlocking them, the only difference being that you need to pay with resources like skill tomes and energy for every upgrade.
You can obtain skill upgrade resources through several means, though the most common will always be the daily missions, which we’ll talk about further down below. However, when it comes to energy, you can score lots of this resource by meditating.
Along your travels, you’ll frequently come by beautiful locations with sprawling panoramic views that often take our collective breaths away. However, it seems we’re not the only ones affected by the beauty of these places as your character can also use the gorgeous view to meditate and cultivate inner growth. In this sense, whenever you come across a spot designated by a green light, feel free to approach and start meditating. This process takes quite a while to complete, but rewards you with plenty of energy to upgrade your skills.
If you’re playing MIR4 on PC with BlueStacks, we suggest simply minimizing the game to the background and doing something else on your computer while your character finishes meditating.
The Daily Missions
Most of what we’ve been mentioning in this beginner’s guide—from purchasing potions to obtaining vigor items—are obtained by spending resources and materials. These items, in turn, can be obtained through several sources, though one of the most reliable is through completing daily missions.
Like with most mobile MMORPGs, MIR4 gives you a list of tasks that you can complete on a daily basis in exchange for resources. These tasks are usually very simple and straightforward like defeating a number of enemies, eliminating a boss, or gathering items, among others. However, despite having such a long list of tasks, you’re limited to only 30 of these per day, so make sure you’re doing only the ones that give the items that you need.
The Fastest Way to Progress
With all that being said, and now that you know how to fight, farm, and grind effectively, the absolute best and fastest way to progress in MIR4 is simply by completing the main story missions. These tasks will not only take you to new areas and have you fight against countless enemies, while also giving you ample rewards for your efforts, but they will also continually unlock new features of the game, including vital ones like the daily missions we mentioned just now.
If you’re ever at a loss and don’t know what to do, simply click on your current objective in the main campaign, and your character will navigate automatically towards it.
And with that, you’re ready to start your journey in MIR4. Do you have any other useful tips and tricks for beginners? Feel free to share them in the comments below!
